    I'm not sure if this is possible or not but here goes.

    My work email is OWA enabled and allows me to get my work email through a web browser. I tried this at home the other day and the server could not be found.

    I assume this is because the OWA address used goes along the format of: http://server01.domain01/exchange and domain01 is not registered as a public domain.

    We do have a public domain at www.company.com and I was wondering if it's possible to change the look up for OWA so that users can type http://server01.company.com/exchange and be able to get to their emails off site?

    Is this possible with minimal effort?

    Cheers,

    Paul

    It's ok I found a work around for this. Enter the public IP address of the email server into the URL instead of the FQDN.

    Ra!

    You could always add another entry into your ISP's DNS pointing to the server with the new servers name.

    Stoney,

    Networkingly speaking, where is this Exchange Server? Internet? Intranet? DMZ?

    Does it matter? If he enters the real world I.P then it works which suggests that port forwading is setup. Once a proper domain name (mail.) is setup then it is ready to go :biggrin
